STEF is a new version of the simulation environment for planning and execution that we have developed this year in substitution of the previous simulator that was designed for the domain JERICO. The purpose of STEF is to simulate the presence of visual sensors in a simulated three-dimensional environment, thus allowing the extension of the knowledge base that describes the scene.



The Spacelab Thermoelectric Freezer (STEF) is a thermoelectric refrigerator/freezer that was developed for and first flown on the LMS mission for the cooling of scientific samples. Similar hardware was built and delivered for the Shuttle Mir Science Program. This project allowed the existing design to be used in the Shuttle Program with a minimum of changes. The STEF is stowed for launch and landing and is deployed on orbit at its usage location in the Spacelab. The STEF operates in two modes: cooling and freezing. In the cooling mode, samples can be chilled to +4 degrees Celsius and maintained within 2 degrees of setpoint. In the freezing mode, the unit can run unregulated at a temperature no warmer than -12 degrees Celsius.

Next project up for Stef is a Hip Hop b-boy/b-girl barbecue called Soul Chicken aka Bite This.

I read the stuf about the STEF freezer on MIR, and then when I read the next bit about the Hip Hop barbecue I had a momentary image of a sattelite hosting the Soul Chicken gather... thank you for the giggles! ;D

That deserves 15 minutes of some sort of wider recognition.

blank look
ok, so i am clearly not at all hip and with it, but exactly how does this meme work? when i type "stef +is" into google i get icelandic stuff, and only one of the above bits ("pissed at mike") on the first page. can one just take whatever one wants from N pages, or is there more to it?

Re: blank look
I used quotes when I typed "stef is" into Google, and I also went about 3 pages into the results. I don't know whether anyone else did it that way.
